Coop Coco on TV: 2 perfumes you can make in less than an hour

2 perfumes you can make in less than an hour

If you make your own products, you know the kitchen is the kingdom of home-made cosmetics fans. We’re sure our products are no strangers to your kitchen (or bathroom, or purse, or cupboard, or bedside table or… well, you get the point). And since we make ourselves at home just about everywhere we go, we thought we’d drop by the kitchen of Marina Orsini. Not to blow our own horn, but we’re pretty proud of that!

If you missed that episode, you can watch it here.

And if you feel inspired by the contagious enthusiasm of Marina and Lyne to make your own perfumes, here are the two recipes made during the program.

So get cooking!

How to make old-fashioned eau de cologne

Parfum liquide

Ingredients

Steps to follow

  1. Prepare and sterilize your equipment and workspace.
  2. Weigh and mix essential oils. Since essential oils do not have the same density it is not possible to give the equivalent of the weight in drops, it depends on the essential oil and on the dropper. That’s why it is important to work with a scale accurate to 0,1g.
  3. Weigh fractionated coconut oil and add blend of essential oils. Stir gently to mix ingredients.
  4. Using a funnel, fill the containers.

Although the perfume is ready to use immediately, it’s a good idea to leave it in a cool, dark place for a week to allow the notes of the essential oils to blend. The perfume will change slightly day by day, and by the end of the week it will be completely stabilized. It is then said to be “fixed”.

Steps to follow

  1. Prepare and sterilize your equipment and workspace.
  2. Weigh essential oils.
  3. Weigh oil and wax and melt slowly in the double boiler.
  4. Once melted, remove from heat and add the blend of essential oils.
  5. Pour into containers and leave to cool with the lids slightly ajar. Wait until the mixture has cooled before covering completely.

As with liquid perfume, although the perfume is ready to be used immediately, it’s a good idea to leave it to blend and fix for a week.

Edit: because of a typo, the weiht for the sclary sage was wrong. You should use 0,2g instead of 2g we are sorry for the inconvenience.
